Old Timey Orange Cookies

I am a super huge fan of old-timey recipes. The recipes where they don't even tell ya what temp to cook your food at. Here is one such:
Old Fashioned Orange Cookies

1/2 cup of butter
1/3 cup of orange juice
1 cup of granulated sugar
2 cups or more of flour
Grated rind of 1 orange (I used penzeys dried; quite a bit of it)
4 tsp. of baking powder
1 egg, beaten lightly
1 tsp. Orange extract

1. Mix in the usual manner, but without separating the white and yolk of the egg.

2. Drop large tablespoonfuls on baking sheet, sprinkle with granulated sugar and bake in a moderate oven. (375° to you and me)
I love citrusy foods, and these chewy orange cookies were pretty damn good. I sprinkled a good bit of sugar on top, anticipating it to dissolve or...i dunno what, but expecting it to not be soo much ontop. Damn good regardless.
